Usman's story

Usman is married and lives in a humble mud house with his wife and children in a small village in Kaduna, Nigeria. Farming is the primary occupation within his community and like many motivated smallholder farmers, he dreams of expanding his farm business. Usman is seeking a loan to buy high-quality seeds, fertilizers, and herbicides for the planting season to enable him double last year’s yield and consequently increase his income. Usman plans to use the profits from this season’s harvest to open an agro-dealer shop to diversify his income.

With support from lenders to grow his farming business, Usman looks forward to a generous harvest and feels more empowered to expand his maize farming operations thereby becoming a successful farmer.
